    Couldn't find any previous evidence, so creating the thread just in case. These were found at Target in Lexington, Kentucky. Bought the Race Track Patrol. 0808201809.jpg 0808201803.jpg

    I need to know if roller force has the bad waist that the initial micromaster cars had.

    I want the Race Track Patrol repainted as Sparkabots Fizzle and Sizzle. It works very well.

    Because I need the money I would have spent on getting the Autobots for other things, and because I only get the bad guy figures with limited exceptions.

    It’s how baby Micromasters are made.

    Oh yeah, forgot to post about this ...

    Super cool figures ....especially the shuttle team.

    They're out in NYC Targets as well!

    The Astro Squad is great, and the Race Track Patrol feel like some of the strongest Micromaster cars so far.

    Mine seems fairly stable; the only hitches are that Roller Force doesn't have a deep knee bend due to transformation, while Road Hog has barely any outward hip movement. However, they don't fall over, nor do they fall apart with transformation — so that's a plus!

    My copy of Roller Force had a QC issue going from robot to vehicle on the engine bay pegs. The pegs were slightly too small to hold in but thankfully some nail polish fixed that

    It seems like just as we’re getting some better QC Micromasters (the previous two sets were good as well), Hasbro is doing away with them... that sucks.
